Celebrity MasterChef, Series 9 Episode 5 of 13

Duration: 1 hour

The hunt continues in the third heat week as five new celebrities take on the challenge to become MasterChef. Trying to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace are actor Alex Ferns, Chelsea socialite Millie Mackintosh, TV presenter Tania Bryer, dancer and choreographer Wayne Sleep and actor Leslie Ash.

The first challenge is the infamous Mystery Box Test, requiring imagination and creativity, as well as skill. The celebrities have to each create a pizza, and with nerves running high and just 50 minutes they must think on their feet to impress the judges.

With the first test over, there's no let-up as the celebrities face paying customers for the first time as they are sent to work during lunchtime service in two busy London restaurants. Leslie, Tania and Wayne are sent to Eyre Brothers and are thrown in at the deep end as they struggle to cope with an unfamiliar kitchen and a busy service. Millie and Alex are sent to Indian restaurant Café Spice Namaste where they fight to master the cooking of their dishes while keeping on top of customer orders.

In the final test of culinary creativity its back to MasterChef headquarters as the contestants are asked to prepare a two-course menu of their own design in just one hour and 15 minutes. The celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges because at the end of this test one of them will be going home.
